The Green Inferno Red Band trailer is not for the faint of heart

One of this month’s most highly-anticipated horror-thrillers is Eli Roth’s “The Green Inferno,” set to release later this month in theaters. The film stars Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Sky Ferreira, Daryl Sabara, and Aaron Burns and takes place in hear of the Amazon Jungle.

The studio asks, “How far would you go for a cause you believe in?” We would say not as far the students in the film went.

In “The Green Inferno” a group of college students take their humanitarian protest from New York to the Amazon jungle only to be taken prisoner by the indigenous tribe they came to save. The Green Inferno marks Eli Roth’s return to directing for the big screen for the first time since his Hostel franchise, and tells the story of what happens when “slacktavism,” the well-meaning social media response to global catastrophes, turns into terror in the depths of the Amazon rainforest.

“Dark and primitive customs still rule the Amazon jungle,” including cannibalism and other “mind, body and soul-destroying rituals.” Trapped in the village, these high-tech modern-world students experience the ultimate in primal barbaric terror, suffering unspeakable acts of violence in an intense and chilling rituals reserved only for the most threatening intruders.

The Green Inferno will open in theaters September 25, 2015
